Allen went 1-for-5 with two stolen bases Thursday against the Royals.
Allen received more than two at-bats for only the third time since September 16. However, he took advantage by swiping his 20th and 21st bases of the season, both of which came against Jason Hammel in the top of the 10th inning. Despite the limited playing time, Allen remains an intriguing option for stolen base production, as he's recorded six since Sept. 22.
Allen went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rays.
Allen reached on a single in the eighth inning and subsequently stole second base before coming around to score on a wild pitch later in the inning. The 25-year-old has been a solid contributor since his promotion earlier in the month -- hitting .282/.329/.352 with eight stolen bases and 10 RBI over that 21-game stretch -- but he could be in jeopardy of losing out on playing time if the newly acquired Josh Donaldson (calf) pushed Jason Kipnis to the outfield.
Allen went 2-for-3 with a stolen base -- his 12th of the season -- in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.
Allen now has six steals in 14 games since being summoned back to the majors earlier in the month, a stretch during which he's also hitting an impressive .362/.412/.447 with a homer and six RBI. With the Indians dealing with a few injuries to their outfield, Allen looks primed to serve as the team's primary center fielder down the stretch, making him a viable fantasy option for those looking for swiped bags.
Allen went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's walkoff victory over the Twins.
Allen singled to right field in the bottom of the ninth, and he stole second base to put himself into scoring position. Michael Brantley would plate Allen to win the game later in the inning. The 25-year-old outfielder has notched a base knock in each of his past four games in the big leagues, although he's been sent to the minor leagues multiple times over the past month: he was called up from Triple-A Columbus prior to Thursday's contest. Allen has struggled at the dish for most of the 2018 campaign, as he's slashing .232/.264/.305 with one homer, five RBI and seven stolen bases through 48 tilts.
Allen will be optioned to Triple-A Columbus, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.
The 25-year-old had three hits and scored three times in Tuesday's win over the Twins, but his fate was already sealed after the Indians acquired Leonys Martin from the Tigers earlier in the day. While Allen figures to be back no later than Sept. 1, he will likely play primarily off the bench upon his return.
